Google announces Game Development Kit for Android 12

Google will implement Android Game Development Kit via the Play Asset Delivery system.

Android 12 will allow you to play games as they are being downloaded.

Android phones have been very popular for mobile gaming, and to further enhance the gaming experience, Google has announced its Android Game Development Kit that will allow developers to work with some advanced features and streamline their workflow without having to switch between two different developer tools.

Additionally, Android 12 will also allow you to play games as they are being downloaded. This feature is primarily useful when the game size is very large, and users want to just test the game play before downloading it fully. The feature is already present in some of the games like EA's Origin Access, but having the support system-wide natively will be more beneficial for the game developers and users. Google will implement it on the play store via the Play Asset Delivery system.

The game development toolkit aims to reduce fragmentation by allowing almost all tools and libraries to work across many Android versions and will be updated in the future to support upcoming Android features. Moreover, some tools would allow developers to track the performance of their game by monitoring CPU and GPU performance.

Finally, performance optimization is yet another goal being targeted with AGDK. This comes via frame profiling in Android GPU Inspector, a bunch of CPU, memory, and power profilers in Android Studio, and a new loading function in Android Performance Tuner.
